  1. Newark Museum and BASF Partner to Make Kids' Science Learning Lab

    Newark museum

    We thought it pretty cool when BASF announced that it is partnering with the Newark Museum to create a Kids' Science Learning Lab at the Museum. As the daughter of a chemist, experimentation is in my blood. I can just imagine how much fun it would be for kids (under supervision) to try out these fun interactive classes on Saturdays. Here's a list of classes:

    Sept 29 (Water Loves Chemistry: Operation Filtration), October 6 (Playful Polymers), October 13 (The Rainbow Connection), October 20 (A Hair-Raising Experiment), November 3 (The pHun Factor), November 17 (Happy Hands), December 1 (Hold Everything), December 8 (A Hair Raising Experiment) and December 15 (Playful Polymers)-- at 1pm and 3pm. Get on your safety goggles folks! This will be fun!

    For children aged 6-12

    Participation: Free, but space is limited

    Reserve in advance by calling 973 596 6563

  2. At Babesta: One Jacket by A for Apple, 3 Ways To Wear it

    A for Apple’s Dewi Utility Furry Jacket might just be the piece de resistance for the season. It’s highly versatile and can be worn layered with the fur vest for a luxe-cool, without the fur vest to get an army jacket feel or vest-alone to top off a chic ensemble. The faux fur is soft and the quality and details of this jacket are stand out

  4. Elyse Kroll Interiors Gives Babesta Threads a Cool Makeover

    Just wanted to give a shout out to Elyse Kroll Interiors--the mastermind behind the Babesta Threads revamp. We can't say enough about Elyse - and we give her our highest recommendation if you're looking to spruce up your home or professional space. We didn't even know we were going to revamp Babesta until Elyse came in (after we tapped her to do the consultation we "won" at the PS 234 school auction). Her ideas were great and we could see her vision in our first conversation. Our interest was immediately piqued and we decided to just go for it. Our contractor was surprised ("we're revamping the space, are you free next week!?") but somehow it all came together. (OK I say somehow, but really it was all of us working round the clock). We love her creativity and resourcefulness coupled with a great ability to listen and understand our business needs and come up with attractive solutions to address each one.
